On February 1st, you made a difference by joining K-LOVE to help raise $495,000 in relief efforts for Food for the Hungry in response to the 7.0 magnitude earthquake in Haiti that took the lives of 220,000 and left over a million homeless. THANK YOU! Food for the Hungry was able to provide emergency support to the region, and is still working to rebuild Haiti one year later.
Your support has enabled Food for the Hungry to provide support in the following areas to the victims of the January earthquake in the past year:
Health and Hygiene
Food, water and sanitation
Child protection and support
Cash for work
While much has been done, there is still a great deal of support needed in Haiti. On October 15th, health officials reported a cholera outbreak due to the lack of clean drinking water and poor sanitation. Since then, over 1,500 people have died due to the disease, and 30,000 Haitians have been infected. Food for the Hungry is currently training staff and mothers in the local communities in cholera prevention and treatment.
